I picked up two small plastic pet carriers and a litter box someone was throwing out. They work, but they reek!! Its like cats were peeing all over them or something..yuck! Anyway what can I use to get the smell out? I thought since I'm fostering they could come in handy, but my landlord would freak if I put something in the basement that smelled like that. I have them outside right now. Any ideas??<br><br>

LOL those are the things that first came to mind too, but I figured I'd find out if there was anything else...because it does stink up to high heaven <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>

I would bleach them out if you were planning on using them again. Soak them in a bleach solution for a while. Honestly though, plastic litter boxes especially are really cheap...they do tend to pick up odors after years of use.

I have one of those cloth cat carriers with mesh windows and sturdy canvas fabric. The cat was really sick once and we took him to the vet and he peed in the carrier. I have put it through the washing machine twice and it still reeks.<br><br>
Would any of these solutions work for this type of carrier??
